France deploys over 100,000 police for New Year's Eve

Paris (AFP) –


More than 100,000 police will be deployed throughout France to guard New Year's Eve celebrations that come six weeks after the jihadist attacks in Paris, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Thursday.

The minister said that while there was "no direct threat" of an attack, "all European capitals are under a general threat after Daesh sent messages", using another name for the Islamic State (IS) group.
